ARROWSIC — An Arrowsic man was arrested Friday night after he allegedly tried to stab an adult relative during a fight over a cheeseburger.

The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office arrested 44-year-old Joshua Canonico on Arrowsic Road around 7:30 p.m. and charged him with domestic violence aggravated assault, a Class B crime punishable by up to 10 years incarceration and a $20,000 fine.

Canonico was fighting with a 23-year-old relative when Canonico allegedly grabbed a wood chisel and tried to stab the other man, who only suffered a scratch and torn shirt, according to Chief Deputy Brett Strout.

“They were fighting over a cheeseburger,” Strout said, declining to explain further what spurred the fight. Strout said alcohol was involved.
